Extending sexual misconduct to combat units

Well, there they go again, carrying water for their army of odd men in raincoats. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Indiana is suing to strike down a state law forbidding convicted sex offenders from using social media such as Facebook.
In the wake of a New York court ruling that says it's not illegal to "merely" view online child pornography, child advocates are urging Internet-savvy federal prosecutors to take over these kinds of cases as two state lawmakers rush to fix the law.
Beginning this week, the Internet's "red-light district" will be open for business as the rush for ".xxx" domain registrations starts in earnest, but whether the new tag to alert — and attract — Web surfers to porn sites will meet expectations is a matter of sharp debate.
“The porn industry is flourishing because the Obama administration has given it a green light to distribute hard-core porn to every man, woman and child in America,” said Patrick Trueman, president of the group Morality in Media.
